Well, for the Filomena story, this could be the said Jimny. Watched this video a couple of years back when all we could do it to scour the youtube for Jimny videos. Enjoy ..

Seems the light weight is an advantage after all. I had a few experiences with my Gypsy being able to crawl through some really sandy beaches and water-bodies with heavier vehicles thoroughly stuck and unmovable due to the sheer weight.

Oh wow. Good to see how this performed in such a harsh weather. BTW, curious to know if the Jimny to be sold here is an undiluted version of the one sold internationally.

Indeed what we are getting is almost as capable as the one sold internationally. The drivetrain and mechanicals are exactly the same. The only change is the increased length which means added weight of approx. 100 kg, reduced breakover angle, and probably some change in driving dynamics (better straight line mannerism due to longer wheelbase).

The 5d Jimny is already lined up for some international markets, and as mentioned with the same powertrain of the 3d Jimny.

1. Australia
2. S Africa
3. Latin America

re: Maruti Jimny 4-door @ Auto Expo 2023

Why isnít MSIL introducing the Jimny with two wheel drive, to suit majority of the interest on this car in the urban market?
We see Mahindra trying to do that with the Thar, with an attractive pricing.

re: Maruti Jimny 4-door @ Auto Expo 2023

While watching this YouTube video, I found that the reviewer was not very happy about the steering of the 3 door Jimny. It is at 18:40 of this video. I guess it is the same type of steering used in 5 door version.

This seems to be the latest review video of the Jimny.

Maybe they will in the future. All the manufacturers follow the internal policy of Never say Never. Mahindraís move is in response to the Jimnyís launch.
I believe looking at the success of Thar convinced MSIL to launch Jimny here as they still canít make enough to fulfill orders from international markets. But then they saw Tharís success and wanted a piece of the pie and they are eyeing the biggest piece that is why they launched the 5 door.

See what's seen around hamamatsu

Any insights/opinions regarding abnormal brake pad/rotor wear as a result of BLD? Any data at this time?

Does this mean that Maruti is not happy with the bookings received so far?

I hope they do ensure that prospective owners who have booked till now are given a test drive before asked to take ownership of the car. No way I am going to accept anything without a test drive.

Drive on,
Shibu

Jimny is primarily an off roader and not a family car. There are plenty of 2WD monocoque pseudo mini SUVs that are far more comfortable for small family and daily commute. Personally I would go for other 2WD options with comfortable 5 seats instead of strictly 4 seater 2WD Jimny.

re: Maruti Jimny 4-door @ Auto Expo 2023

CV Raman (Maruti Suzuki’s CTO) says the 5-door Jimny’s off-road capability is not compromised compared to the 3-door model - “We have optimised it in a way that it doesn’t lose its off-road character

The 5-door Jimny’s departure, ramp breakover and approach angles are not too different from that of the 3-door model.

Quote:
Coming to the Jimny SUV, despite the considerably large wheelbase difference of 340mm between the 5-door and 3-door versions, their ramp breakover, departure and approach angles differ only slightly

Quote:
Both, the 5- and 3-door Jimny SUVs get tech that enhances their off-road abilities, like hill-hold assist, hill descent control and brake limited slip differential. Moreover, they also have the same ground clearance of 210mm.
Quote:
It is worth noting that the 5-door Jimny is heavier than the 3-door by almost 100kg.
Quote:
The Jimny 5-door is expected to go on sale in May 2023 and is likely to be priced around Rs 12 lakh.
